From protein to peptides: a spectrum of non-hydrolytic functions of acetylcholinesterase.

Abstract

Acetylcholinesterase (AChE), a member of the α/β-hydrolase fold superfamily of proteins, is a serine hydrolase responsible for the hydrolysis of the well studied neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh). However, it is becoming clear that AChE has a range of actions other than this 'classical' role. Non-classical AChE functions have been identified in apoptosis… (More)
